Profile of Steve Brooks
Chad Long has performed & lectured all over the world (1). He's worked professionally in bars, nightclubs, restaurants, private parties, trade shows and cruise-ships (2). His debut performance at the Magic Castle received rave reviews (3), and he performed regularly at Malone's Magic Bar in South Florida (4).

His convention appearances include the IBM, SAM, Hank Lee's Cape Cod Conclave, British IBM, Magi-Fest, A-1, Abbott's, Blackpool, SCAM, PCAM, SEAM, and the Tokyo Close-up Convention, to name just a few (5). In December of 1998, Chad took 1st place in Ron McMillan's "International Close-Up Competition" in London, England (6). In May of 1999, Chad was featured on the cover of Magic Magazine (7).

His material has been published in MAGIC, Linking Ring, M.O., Arcane, Trapdoor, The Looking Glass and M.U.M. He's also contributed effects to several books and videos, including "Magic for Dummies", and the "Art of Astonishment" trilogy by Paul Harris (8).

Chad's fast-paced lecture combines a high-energy performance (9), along with humorous explanations to bring an enjoyable experience to all (10). It's filled with both close-up and stand-up effects (11) using everyday objects such as cards, coins, dart guns, pens, rubber bands, keys, spray paint, finger rings, lint brushes, matches and more! Chad's material has been honed by years of performance and there is truly something for everyone (12)!

Footnotes:

2. Basically, anyone that will hire me.

3. My mom LOVED it.

4. Okay, only for a month, but it still counts.

5. I did them all for my standard fee of $50 and a meal.

6. I was the only entrant.

7. And I'm still making monthly payments.

8. I just wanted a free set of books.

9. If I've had my nap.

10. Except for that cranky guy in Philly.

11. Just my close-up effects, done standing.

12. Except for that cranky guy in Philly.
